the debate. i saw david axelrod and david plauffe didn't bring it up because there's ads out there. you've been a vocal supporter of the president. let me play it. >> there's no question here that president obama showed that his campaign has been doing the work for him, and mitt romney has been doing the work for his campaign. without a question the obama supporters were on their heels last night and disappointed, wondering where was this guy who they've been seeing in these tv commercials going so hard at mitt romney? >> to put in perspective, we don't know if there's an actual bump for mitt romney on this. it will take days before we see the polling which has been repeated over and over. a lot of bahaobama supporters h look of defeat because they fought so hard and they wanted to see that man in the mirror, a reflection of the fight that they've put up for him over many months. >> i think that's right. it's frustrating when you see a guy you're rooting for not fighting and being beat. >> give me your perspective on where you felt he was being beat? >> it was all stylistic. substantive

's this, who knows what it will be next week when the vice president debates. one thing of david axelrod's response is that the president was basically taking the high road last night which almost makes it sound like the president's performance was a conscious tactical decision. do you buy that? >> i don't think they consciously decided to lose this debate and i don't think david axelrod is going to come out and say you know what, the president really blew it last night, although as jessica pointed out privately, certainly, there are obama allies who are happy to say that. but i do think there was a conscious decision here to be risk-averse. you had a candidate in the president who is ahead, people like him more than they like mitt romney, they believe he's on their side by a three to one margin, that he understands their problems, and there was a sense you know what, we don't want to mess with that. that's really good. we're doing well on the battleground states, we're ahead in the head-to-head polls, so let's kind of ease up here. we don't need to go on the attack. we just have to defe

. senior advisers to the president like david axelrod having conference calls this morning, doing the morning shows incision the president did not lose the debate last night. this rally here tells a much different story, not just the president's words but i spoke to several obama voters here behind me earlier who told me that they believe mitt romney showed them something they had not seen last night. these are obama voters. two of them told me that they thought mitt romney showed gravatas, that he could be on the same stage with the president. nonetheless to be clear these obama voters said they were still likely to be with the president but they saw something new from mitt romney, a spark if you will. from the president what i saw just a moment ago was a president who seemed to realize that he had missed opportunities last night, that time after time when mitt romney punched him last night he did not counter punch, so he tried to do that today. take a listen to this. >> the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and

advisor david axelrod said this about the debate. the president's never satisfied with his performance. he is always challenging himself. and he will review it if he wants to make changes in the next debate, he will do so. what he was satisfied with was that he went and told the american people the truth as i mentioned polls show most americans governor romney won the debate. you can see it's not even close in this cnn survey. but almost half the viewers also said the debate did not effect how they will vote in november. these overnight surveys are instant, emotional reaction that could change down the road. campaign carl cammeron is live at governor romney's rally in fisher'sville virginia. >> humble. campaign thinks he ran away. trace atkins warming up the crowd here. right in the heart of shenandoah valley. very red part of the state. began in denver in the wake of last night's debate. he called surprise at colorado action conference. the crowd absolutely ate it up. romney reiterated a new line revealed last night arguing that the obama agenda amounts to trickle down government which he
